Sales and customer service are the corner stones of a successful retail business. Loss prevention and managing risk can impact a business’ bottom line as much as poor sales or service. Because we understand the importance of risk management, the attorneys at Hall Booth Smith have made protecting your business one of our primary practice goals.

To that end, we believe that prevention is the key to reduced personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. We assist our clients in the creation and the implementation of policies and procedures to help make their businesses safe for employees and customers. Likewise, we assist in loss prevention plans, which help reduce property loss as a result of damage or theft.

When litigation is unavoidable, we have extensive experience in litigating and in trying retail liability cases. We have litigated and tried retail liability cases arising out of the following claims:

  • Alcohol Sales to Minors
  • Bad Checks
  • Falling Merchandise
  • False Imprisonment
  • Libel/Slander
  • Malicious Prosecution
  • Negligent Construction
  • Products Liability
  • Slip and Fall
  • Trip and Fall

Our attorneys have extensive experience working with brokers, underwriters and claim professionals in the international insurance market, particularly with Lloyds of London. Our firm has handled many matters on behalf of various Syndicates at Lloyds, and our attorneys understand how this unique market works. We utilize these long-standing relationships to assist foreign insurers in managing their domestic litigation, as well as, assisting domestic clients in gaining access to the Lloyds’ market.

We hope that you will consider our firm when you have retail liability issues.
